Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
German politicians seem to have a tendency to eat their own as soon as one of them proposes any particular policy. We saw this most recently with Kirchhoff last week, who came in for criticism from "fellow" CDU members for his proposed income tax policy.

So it's a lot safer to play pseudo-politics than to take a stand.

The fact is that what we're experiencing right now is a top-down disaster. -Paul Krugman
